Kempner High School’s Health Science Technology Class honored with fourth White House Silver Eagle Award

FORT BEND ISD - For the fourth consecutive year, Kempner High School’s Health Science Technology II class was honored with President Barack Obama’s White House Silver Eagle award for hosting its annual blood drive that harvested 763 units of blood. The Silver Eagle award is the highest honor a teenager can merit from the White House.

The 2013 class’ record harvest surpassed that of previous classes and set records in both Fort Bend and Harris Counties. The units of blood will benefit St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital’s blood bank, under the direction of Craig Valiare, and will be used to support Dr. Denton Cooley’s team of heart surgeons at the hospital’s Heart Institute.

The Sugar Land City Council honored the 27 Health Science Technology II students at a recent City of Sugar Land City Council Meeting. Mayor James Thompson presented Dr. Jeff Ricken, Health Science Technology instructor, with a proclamation on behalf of the City Council recognizing the class for receiving a national award for its record-breaking blood drive.
